Bond Set at $100K for VA’s Former Peaceable Farm Rescuer



A Virginia judge set bond at $100,000 Thursday for a former horse rescuer charged with embezzling funds.

Anne Shumate Williams, also known as Anne Goland, was arrested last month for the second time related to the now disbanded Peaceable Farm.

Goland has been in jail since March 30. She is charged with 13 felony counts of embezzlement. If Goland is found guilty, each charge carries a maximum penalty of 20-years in prison.

Last October, Orange County authorities searched Goland’s Somerset property where she ran Peaceable Farm. They found dead and dozens of emaciated horses, which were removed from the farm. She is charged with 27 counts of misdemeanor animal cruelty and was out on $75,000 bond until her latest arrest.

Circuit Court Judge Daniel Bouton set various bond conditions for Goland. They include turning in her passport and no ownership of animals. Goland is scheduled to be back in court in the embezzlement case on June 2.

A week later her animal cruelty trial is slated to begin. Stay with us as we continue to follow the latest.
